Cabe Gallo: You were willing to sacrifice one of my team to make your case.
Adriana Molina: I was thinking about three members of the Federal Judiciary.
Cabe Gallo: You were thinking about what would look worse for you: three dead judges or one dead kid. I'm a Marine. "No man left behind" means something to me.
Adriana Molina: My hope was to protect everyone involved.

Always with just seconds to spare
7 October 2015 | by carly_hopeSee all my reviews

I understand that the concept of Scorpion is about the team being able to do things that mere mortals are not able to but it would be nice if they didn't always have to run against a clock and achieve their goal with only seconds to spare. They could shake the formula once in a while.

Other then that I quite enjoyed the episode. I so felt for and with Sly. But he did such a good job.

I like that his relationship with Megan, as low-key as it is, is the most functioning one on the show. Walter and Paige are slowly learning from each other. And poor Toby. He often comes across as pushy but it can't be easy to be so self-aware and also aware of the others to understand what is happening and knowing there isn't much you can do about it. Though I have the feeling all is not as it seems with Happy's gentleman caller.

I really enjoyed the subplot with Ralph. He found an effective solution and he is aware enough to know how messed up his friends are in some regards.

I also liked Cabe playing father to both Toby and Sly though I hate that they threw an interesting female character under the bus to prop him. That is just lazy writing.

Overall an entertaining and suspenseful episode.

And it was nice to see Wade Williams in prison again.
